Visiteur

Visiteur en Python

Le Visiteur est un patron de conception comportemental qui permet d’ajouter de nouveaux comportements à une hiérarchie de classes sans modifier l’existant.

Découvrez pourquoi les visiteurs ne peuvent pas être remplacés par la surcharge de méthodes dans notre article Visiteur et double répartition.

Utilisation du patron de conception en Python

Complexité :

Popularité :

Exemples d’utilisation : Le visiteur n’est pas un patron très répandu en Python à cause de sa complexité et de la rareté de ses cas d’utilisation.

Exemple conceptuel

Dans cet exemple, nous allons voir la structure du Visiteur. Nous allons répondre aux questions suivantes :

  • Que contiennent les classes ?
  • Quels rôles jouent-elles ?
  • Comment les éléments du patron sont-ils reliés ?

"""
Concrete Visitors implement several versions of the same algorithm, which can
work with all concrete component classes.

You can experience the biggest benefit of the Visitor pattern when using it with
a complex object structure, such as a Composite tree. In this case, it might be
helpful to store some intermediate state of the algorithm while executing
visitor's methods over various objects of the structure.

The client code works with all visitors via the base Visitor interface:
A + ConcreteVisitor1
B + ConcreteVisitor1
It allows the same client code to work with different types of visitors:
A + ConcreteVisitor2
B + ConcreteVisitor2
